Question about LG 24 in. LDS 5811 Built-in Dishwasher
just a guy in new jersey with an ongoing leak problem. we noticed water pooling at the front right of the unit. my wife started putting towels and now a plastic in front to catch the dripping water, about 1/3 glass of it through one wash. I noticed that there was no water pooling underneath the unit, it was strictly under the door area, with a dry area between that and the kick plate, so I assume it's not an inlet thing from the back.
Then I noticed water was tricking down on the RHS of the door, on the "back" part of the door, it was trickling down from all the way at the top right, where there was a loud gurgling sound if you put your ear there.
I dont know if its a "door not properly locking or closing" thing ( I read that that hinges can not be adjusted, even if I knew how to adjust them), or a "gasket is starting to fail" thing.
My problem is-- if I buy a gasket for the door, I read the newer part # is 3920DD3005A for 40 bucks or whatnot, will I be able to put it in myself? Would I need a special tool?
thanks. you'll be making my wife happy if you can solve this!
The new replacement door gasket is slightly thicker than the original and should stop your leakage. It might take you two minutes to change it out if you are taking your time. (ie: on a scale of 1 - 10, this one's a 1.) Old one pulls out, new one pushes in. No tools needed.
